Ledger of the Congdon Store, Conwayborough

June 19, 1856 - 20 December 1858

Submitted by Catherine H. Lewis

(George R. Congdon, Jr. was known as Conwayborough George to distinguish him from the merchant of the same name who had a business in Georgetown. His father, George R. Congdon, Sr., came from Kent, RI to Conwayborough and married Charlotte Caroline Norman on 19 March 1834. She was a granddaughter of John Beaty III, daughter of Sarah Jane Beaty and Joshua S. Norman. He was born in 1808 and died 23 October 1839. He and Charlotte (c1815-19 June 1845) are buried in the churchyard of Conway First United Methodist Church.

The names of George R. Congdon's customers are given below. The fullest form of each name is shown, whether from the index or the accounts themselves. Accounts on pages missing from the back of the book are marked by and asterisk. Most accounts with outstanding balances on 20 December 1958 have the notation: "By transfered to Holmes' Ledger". The accounts of Major Thomas H. Holmes disclose that Congdon owed him $8,518.11 when the transfer was made.
